  • Plot 1 0.44 ha **Under Offer**
  • Plot 2 0.27 ha
  • Plot 3 0.17 ha
  • Plot 4 0.18 ha
  • The sites are currently un-serviced although each of the plots has been delineated
  • The vendor will provide a common entrance road, electricity, water and a septic tank to each plot
  • Extending to approximately 0.42 Acres (0.17 Hectares)


The sites benefit from a north easterly aspect and are gently contoured to maximise privacy, yet benefit from the views over the sea.

Each plot runs down to the sea and offers the opportunity to create a jetty or simply lay a mooring to allow the full benefit of the sea to be enjoyed.

The four plots each have different attributes but should with flair allow a purchaser to create a most attractive environment around their house.

The plots which vary in size from 0.36 to 0.76 acres can be landscaped to cater for individual requirements.

The planning consent gives latitude for an innovative design which may be interpreted as modern but with a Scottish vernacular twist.

Planning permission
Planning Permission in Principle was granted on the 17th January 2014 under reference 13/00331/PP, copies of which are available upon application to the sole selling agents.


The plots lie approximately 13 miles to north of Oban and thus are within easy commuting distance of the town yet allow the opportunity to create the best of both worlds by purchasing a building plot which has direct access to the Sea and some of the most outstanding scenery in Argyll.

Bonawe is a historic settlement lying adjacent to the Loch Etive Special Area of Conservation and within a community that enjoys a strong sense of cohesion.

The village supports an excellent primary school and is approximately 6 miles to the south of the village of Benderloch which provides a range of local services including a well stocked general store with post office, café with book shop, petrol station with outdoor clothing and equipment as well as a village hall and primary school.

The main local centre is that of Oban, an extremely attractive and popular tourist destination which is the hub of North Argyll.

The town is the principal Caledonian MacBrayne ferry terminal for most of the inner Hebridean islands as well as two of the outer Hebridean islands. A railway station lies adjacent to the ferry terminal.

The line serves Glasgow and beyond and services run on a regular basis.

In addition there is a recently upgraded airport at North Connel approximately 5 miles to the west of Bonawe from which scheduled air services operate to several of the inner Hebridean islands as well as having facilities for private aircraft.

The countryside around Bonawe is some of the most spectacular in Scotland. The village lies on the Northern Shores of Loch Etive which is one of the least explored and most historic sea lochs in Argyll.

The Loch rises in Glen Etive, which recently rose to prominence due to the filming of the James Bond film Skyfall.

Glen Etive runs through from Glencoe and is the scene of the tragic love story of Dalriada. In more modern times Loch Etive has to a large extent avoided the progress of the motor car. Much of the loch is only accessible by sea or foot. Historically however the Loch was the scene of great activity with a thriving charcoal industry centred at various points along the loch but principally at the Bonawe Iron Furnace which is now protected by Historic Scotland.

The mountains and hills around the area are some of the most challenging and beautiful in Scotland and regularly attract mountaineers and hill walkers from across Europe.

Loch Etive is one of the most sheltered sea lochs and whilst it will be certainly be possible subject to Crown Estate consent to lay a summer mooring at the bottom of your garden it may be possible to keep a boat throughout the year on the mooring.

The Loch is famous for its sea fishing with good catches recently of pollock and saithe as well the ubiquitous mackerel



From Glasgow airport take the M8 towards Greenock. After approximately 5 miles take the M898 towards the Erskine Bridge. Once over the Erskine Bridge take the A82 to Crianlarich. At Tarbet on the shores of Loch Lomond turn right to Crianlarich. After travelling through Crianlarich then travel to Tyndrum, on arrival at Tyndrum turn left on to the A85 towards Dalmally and Oban. At Connel travel under the bridge and turn left towards Fort William. Once over the bridge immediately turn right onto the B845 road to North Connel and Bonawe. Follow the road for approximately 8 miles and upon entering the village the sites are on the right hand side of the road opposite the Village School
